Alumni August Newsletter
Classmates & Milne Alumni,
We know Page Hall and the Milne buildings factor into the University's overall plan, but at a meeting on August 3rd with Judy Koblintz Madnick, 1961, Faith Meyer Sandles, 1959, Michael Boots, and Mary Johnson from the University, our Milne interests were specifically discussed.
According to Judy, here are the topics that were covered: The University mailing list, which no longer includes Milne alumni; the renovation of Page Hall; a Milne Scholarship award to a UAlbany School of Education student; display cases for Milne memorabilia; locating still-living former Milne supervisors; direct informational mailings to Milne alumni without e-mail addresses; public relations; and tours of the former Milne School buildings.
In response to this meeting, which I did not attend, I suggested we have a name for our interests and proposed The Milne Heritage Project as the name of the organization by our loosely organized Milne Alumni that will represent all University- and Milne-related activities. I also suggested a reframed wish list of projects and activities.
These unprioritized-as-yet activities include:
future renovation of Page Hall and other Milne buildings.
This list is different than the Milne Alumni plans that developed the directories, the website, monthly newsletter, and ongoing enhancements and completion in these areas. If you are interested in additional information about the Milne Heritage Project, please contact me.
Judy asked me to ask you if you want a link attached to your name as it is listed in the Milne website directories. If someone wishing to contact you sees your name and clicks on it, a link to a blank e-mail with your e-mail address would automatically come up. All the class contacts that have agreed to be listed already have this working link. Judy can make it available to any Milne alumni with a working e-mail address. Please let her know through the website http://www.albany.edu/~milne/.
has also added a message board to the website and also she is listing
Milne alumni businesses with links.
After my 35th class reunion last month, where it was so wonderful to see so many of my old classmates again, I am back to completing the unpublished contact directory, which will have as much comprehensive and updated alumni contact information as possible. Please let me know if you have any change of address or know of missing classmates.
Best wishes to everyone in the Class of 1946 at their 60th Reunion in Albany next month. Jack Underwood and Ann Graham Carter are the organizers of this reunion.
I hope you are having a good summer.
Thank you for your responses to the newsletters.
Mary Welch, '71
